Bâtard-Montrachet, Louis Latour

In one of the most epic areas for white wine, Montrachet, there is a legend: the Lord of the town left one piece of land to his Knighted son (“Chevalier”), and one to his illegitimate son (“Bâtard”). Names and legend aside, this is a powerful and exceptional wine. Orchard fruit, hay, toast, marzipan, and even a hint of revered cat pee. It’s hard to imagine how wonderfully orchestrated these flavors are, so you will just have to see for yourself.
